Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum, Turku

4.4
#2 of 15 in Museums in Turku
Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum features craftworks from pre-industrial times in an 18th-century open-air museum. When the Great Fire of 1827 destroyed 75 percent of the town, this area remained unharmed. Today you can wander through wooden homes decorated by colorful doors, windows, and chimneys. Note the grass on the roofs of some, while others feature barns and wooden stairs that lead to small attics. Inside the houses, you'll see old tools, furniture, and textiles. Throughout the site, artisans produce merchandise that you can purchase. To visit Luostarinmaki Handicrafts Museum and other attractions in Turku, use our Turku trip maker website .

  • Extreme Musealisation with the Carnies, but very interesting. The historic working class neighbourhood is well preserved and as good as any building open to the public. To recommend very well with children!

  • The monastery on the Hill Käsityöläismuseo is a great way to experience a blast from the past. The target is well suited for children about 6 years old upwards. Guides tell the memorable little stories. There is also a soma, a coffee shop/Café.

  • A market anchored in the past. A great walk, ideal for large and especially for children. Some craftsmen working on their sites, with all the elements that were used in antiquity. Shops unfortunately have little variety ed crafts to buy, the entrance is accessible (not economic, but accessible). To go with time enjoy each room to remember (for those who already have an age) some things that we saw at our grandparents House.

  • Lovely museum near the center of Turku. You can see very old and typical Finnish houses, some old handcraft. In some of the room, you can find people dressed in costume that can answer your questions or show you how some craft was done. Only weekness of the place, is that, for what I understand, it is completely open only in summer or during weekends. So if you visit in any other periods, some of the places would be closed and there will be only a few actors. Staff was nice and welcoming, the price is around 7€, so it is worth the price.
  • Joaaa. I was a bit disappointed, even though the place was looking nice and the houses as well as the old stuff looked fantastic. The problem was, that even though we asked whether all houses were open, lots of them have actually been unter reconstuction during summer.
  • Pretty amazing place to visit in Turku, it takes atleast 2-3 hours to properly see all the houses in the open air museum and it is worth a visit
  • Despite being winter and half of the exhibitions not open yet, we had a great time here. It's a very nice museum that will take you to older days of Finland.
  • Original restored Finnish working houses dating more than 200 years. Friendly staff explaining the details of many different crafts. A lot to see and a really great feeling of past times!
